Meta-Analysis of tDCS on Substance and Food Craving

Link – A Meta-Analysis of Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation on Substance and Food Craving: What Effect Do Modulators Have? Abstract Substance addiction and food addiction are significant social problems worldwide. In previous studies of substance addiction, transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) has been used to influence craving of substance or food. However, the reported effects […]

Association of Exercise with Inhibitory Control

Link – Association of Exercise with Inhibitory Control and Prefrontal Brain Activity Under Acute Psychosocial Stress. Abstract Psychosocial stress has negative effects on cognition in adolescents. The aim of this study was to investigate whether physical exercise can buffer such effects on inhibitory control and associated cortical brain areas. Forty-two male high school students aged […]

tDCS in binge eating disorder.

Link – Combined antisaccade task and transcranial direct current stimulation to increase response inhibition in binge eating disorder. Abstract Binge eating disorder (BED) is associated with deficient response inhibition. Malfunctioning response inhibition is linked to hypoactivation of the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (dlPFC), where excitability could be increased by anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). Response […]

Brain Stimulation to Modulate Food Intake and Eating Behavior.

Link – Brain Stimulation to Modulate Food Intake and Eating Behavior. Abstract PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Appetitive behaviors are mediated through homeostatic and reward signaling of brain circuits. There has been increasing interest in the use of neuromodulation techniques aimed at targeting brain regions such as the lateral prefrontal and subcortical regions associated with dysregulation of […]

Emotional facets of impulsivity in eating disorders

Link – Emotional and non-emotional facets of impulsivity in eating disorders: From anorexia nervosa to bulimic spectrum disorders. Abstract OBJECTIVE: Impulsivity and difficulties in regulating emotions are considered to be transdiagnostic characteristics of patients with eating disorders (EDs). The study aimed to investigate trait impulsivity and inhibitory components of impulsivity, related or unrelated to emotions […]
